Authors Satzinger, Jackson, and Burd use a popular, highly effective presentation to teach both traditional (structured) and object-oriented (OO) approaches to systems analysis and design. Now streamlined to 14 chapters, this agile, iterative book emphasizes use case driven techniques as the authors focus on the content thats most important to know for success in systems analysis and design today. The book highlights use cases, use diagrams, and the use case descriptions required for a modeling approach, while demonstrating their application to traditional approaches, Web development approaches, object-oriented approaches, and service-oriented architecture approaches. Students become familiar with the most recent developments and tools as content reflects Microsoft® Project 2010. Expanded coverage of project management in this edition emphasizes issues critical for adaptive projects as well as the traditional predictive approach to projects. A new continuing case study, new mini-projects, and a Best Practices feature further strengthen the books practical applications of skills learned.
